Artist's description:

This painting was based on personal photographs.

The stunning beech avenue of intertwining branches was planted as part of the 18thc landscaping for the Stuart mansion of Gracehill House. The house was built around 1775 and was named after James Stuart’s (a relative of King James) wife Grace. The house and grounds are currently a hotel and golf course.

Whilst the house is relatively well known locally, the atmospheric and iconic Dark Hedges has become world famous through the Game of Thrones series. Although presented in one short scene, the location as the ‘Kings Road’ has captivated millions, showing Arya Stark and Gendry escaping from Kings Landing on the back of a horse drawn cart not long after the execution of Arya’s father Eddard Stark.

Sadly, it has not been used since in the series but the popularity of the avenue has meant recent evaluations on traffic access and the impact this is having on the trees.

Materials used:

Watercolour and Acrylic

The Dark Hedges, Ballymoney (2017)
